Are there alternatives to restoring the computer besides using the software restore cds? When I use my restore cds it loads up for a bit and then the toolbar at the top appears shows what looks like a battery with an X on it and then shuts off completely. And theres no way to restore it.

By the way Im running Mac OS 10.0 (the first one) and I am trying to use the original OS 8.6 Software Restore cds and then plan on upgrading to OS 9.2 then later on to Panther.
